Hotel plans announced for Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi

The owners of Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi announced plans to break ground on a new hotel next spring. Those plans will be officially unveiled after the clock strikes midnight tonight.

Doug Shipley, Margaritaville's president/CEO, says the hotel will feature 250 rooms including 170 deluxe guest rooms and 80 two- and three-bedroom suites. He says the casino will offer some time-share units.

In addition to the hotel, Shipley said Margaritaville will expand and completely renovate the casino floor, adding meeting space and a resort-style pool and spa. He said the casino will also open a new steakhouse.

Along with the renovations and expansions, the casino will make improvements at its marina to provide more secured overnight docking accommodations, as well as developing a bay-front resort pool and pool bar with outdoor gaming.

We'll have more from tonight's event on Good Morning Mississippi tomorrow.
